Ensuring Optimum Mixability In Feed Manufacturing: Part 6 - Conclusion


Feed costs comprise the single most expensive component in producing poultry or other types of meat animals. As a result, effort to reduce nutrient variability within feeds will yield a significant return to commercial operations. Proper ingredient processing and storage, adequate maintenance of mill equipment and routine testing of the final feed are essential to insure optimum animal response to feed nutrients, while controlling feed costs. Nutritionists and feedmill operators should work together to closely monitor feed preparation, and final feed specifications. The bottom-line result will be a reduction in the cost to produce a unit of meat or eggs.
